I had reopened my claim over a year ago and was sent to my original QME. He stated in his report that I indeed had an increase in my back and neck disability but would also need to be seen by a Psychologist. He wanted to wait to discuss my TTD and PS status after he received my report from the psych evaluation. Well after he received my psch evaluation he put together his report stating that my TTD status should go back for a year and I would need to have continued treatment for my ortho complaints and I
would need to see a psychologist once a week and a psychiatrist for a year.
My question is I already see a psychologist every 4-6 weeks and that seems to be helping, will I have to start seeing her more often to retain my benefits
or could she state in a report that our time that we spend now together is sufficient. Also does my PTP have to request to the IC to approve these appointments. I live in a rural area and I don't believe my psychologist is going to want to be involved in a workmans comp case, is it possible to see doctors out of state I am apx 1hr from Reno, NV.
